Significant Itch Relief

A total of 251 adolescents in Trial 6 (16 weeks) with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis inadequately controlled with topical prescription therapies were randomized to DUPIXENT or placebo. Adolescents ≥60 kg received DUPIXENT 300 mg Q2W after a 600 mg loading dose, and adolescents <60 kg received 200 mg Q2W after a 400 mg loading dose. An endpoint included the reduction in itch as defined by ≥4-point improvement in the Peak Pruritus NRS at Week 16.1,2

Significant itch reduction (Peak Pruritus NRS) at Week 16 with DUPIXENT in Trial 6 (secondary endpoint)1-3,a,b

The safety and efficacy of DUPIXENT were generally consistent between adolescents and adults1

  1. Full Analysis Set includes all subjects randomized.
  2. In the primary analyses of the efficacy endpoints, subjects who received rescue treatment or with missing data were considered nonresponders (59% and 21% in the placebo and DUPIXENT arms, respectively).

Pruritus NRS assesses the average itch intensity over the previous 24 hours4

A patient-reported measure that uses a 0- to 10-point scale, with which patients are asked4:

“On a scale of 0 to 10, how would you rate your itch overall (on average) during the previous 24 hours?”

The Worst

A reduction of at least 4 points in pruritus NRS from baseline is a clinically meaningful change.1
